Fiji to Concentrate on MSG

Fiji Broadcasting Corporation, May 24, 2010 

Fiji will now concentrate on leading the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) after being suspended from the Pacific Islands Forum.

Speaking to FBC News Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says the Forum is not the only way for Fiji to engage with other countries.

Bainimarama says Fiji will not be deterred with Australia and New Zealand’s decision to ban Fiji from the Forum meeting.

However he says other interested countries who want to have a dialogue with Fiji could join the MSG meeting which has been opened up for discussions.

The MSG which supported Fiji in July last year believes that the Melanesian region can be one of solidarity and cooperation.

Fiji will host the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) leaders meeting in July.

  • This is another a desperate bid by ratu suguraki to legitimise his illegal regime. When will you get it through your thick skull that the PIF is not only NZ & Australia. Yes, they are the major players but the rest of it is made up of the countries that you are trying to invite to your grog party. What would they want to talk you about anyway? They have legitimate govts voted in by the it's people and ruled by genuine leaders not a tinpot dictator. 
  • You are better off sending an invite to Mr Mugabe and Senior General Than Shwe in Burma to come and see you. You have more in common with them then the rest of the Pacific nations.
